Description

Guide Price £500,000-£515,000. Dating back to the 1700's this PROMINENT detached CHARACTER HOME and STUDIO ANNEXE was once home to the VILLAGE REGISTRAR. With a HERITAGE STEEPED IN LOCAL HISTORY, the present owner enjoys recalling how the property includes a BEAUTIFUL TIMBER BEAM from the CATHEDRAL, and HAND CRAFTED DOORS from the ABBEY. Situated in an ELEVATED SPOT with HIGH LEVEL HEDGING screening the property from the road, ample parking can be found, COUPLED with WRAP AROUND GARDENS - and OPEN FIELD VIEWS to rear. Once inside, the PORCH ENTRANCE offers an attractive vaulted ceiling, and leads to the 24' SITTING ROOM with its MAGNIFICENT INGLENOOK FIREPLACE. With CHARACTER and CHARM throughout, most rooms enjoy exposed BEAMS to the walls and ceilings. Double doors open up to the TRIPLE ASPECT DINING ROOM, with a further door to the 21' KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM. The garden room, utility room and shower room complete the downstairs. The first floor offers THREE DOUBLE BEDROOM and family bathroom.

LOCATION Situated within the highly sought after South Norwich village of Poringland, the village itself offers every amenity a family could need including doctors, dentist, shops, schools and regular bus links to Norwich. Still a rural village, various walks and parks can be enjoyed, with various other villages and hamlets close by with further walks and public houses.

DIRECTIONS You may wish to use your Sat-Nav (NR14 7NA), but to help you...Leaving Norwich via the Trowse Interchange opposite the County Hall on the A146 signposted Lowestoft and Beccles. Pass the A47 Norwich bypass junction, keeping right and take the B1332 signposted to Bungay. After approximately two and a half miles pass through the village of Framingham Earl and into Poringland. At the first and second roundabouts continue straight over. The property can be found on your left hand side, tucked away, and indicated by our For Sale board, just as you leave the village.

Occupying an elevated position, the property is approached via a shingled driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles, leading to the main property and detached annexe. High level mature hedging screens the property from the road, with wrought iron gates leading into the side and rear garden.
